ShareMyToolbox has made a long-term commitment to give back. We believe that all people are called to give graciously to help those around them. Whether that is through gifts of time, money or resources all of us should be giving.
In this spirit, we have committed to helping Habitat for Humanity chapters around the nation. Habitat chapters operate much like contracting companies and have lots of small tools and equipment that need to be tracked. Lost time and money from tools impact Habitat chapters, just like it would any other contractor. With this in mind, ShareMyToolbox has committed to providing a FREE system to any Habitat Chapters that are in need. By making the chapters more efficient we hope to indirectly help the communities they operate in.
“As individuals and as companies; the more we give, the more we recognize how much has been given to us. Giving and serving are foundational for everyone.” Chris Wirtz
